I found in my family papers dated 1939 this cemetery which was located next to the Union Church. The land of the farm where this cemetery is situated was once owned by James Borthwick. This was done by some one else I'm sure, as I don't recognize the handwriting and I wish I could give this person the credit but I don't know who did it. I'm a descendant of Benjamin Brayman and Nancy Borthwick's daughter Helen Jane Brayman who married Smith H Potter. These are my 3rd & 2nd gr grandparents. I have typed it as it is written.

We are the current owners of the Borthwick homestead, and noticed a couple of small questionable things on your list. There are 5 persons by the name of Crippen, for whom, in parentheses, someone is guessing their name might actually be “Grippen.” Actually, Crippen is correct, so I’d take out that speculation.
One Milton Palmer is actually Minton Palmer; ditto his wife, Polly (w/o Minton, not Milton). Other than that, your list seems pretty accurate.

This might assist with the 1939 writing mystery...and it might not!!! My
father's uncle, William Sidney Borthwick, published a Borthwick Genealogy
book in the year 1936 having waited for my father's birth on 4/15/36 for inclusion. It is my understanding that he did extensive research for the
book and took the genealogy back to the Lord Borthwick's in Scotland in the 1600 or 1700s.
The reason I think this might help with the writing mystery is the simple fact that William Sidney Borthwick and my father's father, George William Borthwick were located in Cornwallville, NY (Greene County) which is not really that far from your neck of the woods. Supposedly WSB worked for quite some time on the book and interviewed and met with a great number of people during that period. It would seem reasonable that he would have spent time at the Borthwick Cemetery and likely with some of your relatives (who likely are some of mine in some way!!!) to develop the lists and information to include in the genealogy book.
